You wish your mom was this cool...

Yeah that's right. My mom MADE this for me! She took my old car seat and recovered it in this adorable fabric (Bliss for Moda). We got a tutorial from Etsy, but really all it said was to cover up the preexisting parts, so it wasn't really worth the money. I helped, but my mom was definitely the brains and talent behind this operation.

Isn't it awesome??? I just pray that that ultrasound technician got it right...

Candy Corn Wreath

My good friend Emily had a fun craft she wanted us to do.

She was inspired by this:



from the Woman's Day magazine.

Soooo...we started!

1. Emily bought small wicker-ish wreaths from the dollar store. We covered them up with some black tape we found at Ace Hardware.



2. Then we hot glued candy corn onto the taped wreath. (Note: Use hot glue! No other kind of glue works!)



3. Pretty wreath! This was as far as we got at Emily's.



And here's mine!

Potholder and WINNERS!

For my mother-in-law's birthday, I tried to make her a potholder (without a pattern).

It turned out okay... why did I not switch out my white thread for my brown thread??

DUH.

Oh, well. I suggest if you're planning on making one, to add double the batting. Just so you don't burn yourself.
